As part of the integration process, SADC member states adopted a trade resolution in August 1996 to establish a Free Trade Area by 2008. It was expected that Zimbabwe would use the phase down period, to strategize and align herself for the Free Trade Area. While it is evidently noticeable that the country has overall fulfilled its obligations to reduce tariffs on a yearly basis, analysis of Zimbabwe’s revenue patterns does not however reflect such a view. Zimbabwe’s tariff phase down period does not show significant responses to the tariff phase downs implemented from the year 2000 to 2007.
